Guest DT Heather Landry: Remember When...

Hi everyone! It's Heather again and I'm back with the last of my guest design team posts. I'd like to thank Suzanne and Susan for having me. It's been a wonderful experience working with everyone here at Flamingo Scraps!

The layout that I created this time was inspired by a sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches.  I used the March 14th sketch. They also create card sketches to share at the site and if you struggle with card making you'll love them!
From Flamingo Scraps: Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper, doilies, chipboard, and stickers; Prima Sweet Taffy flowers, E-Line gems, and E-Line flowers

I used several different punches to anchor the leaning photo block. I also added a large crochet flower from the Sweet Taffy collection for the same reason. I thought that it would really work well on a page about my grandma because she crochets and is very crafty. I altered the photos by converting them to black and white because the children were wearing really bright colors that clashed with the paper I wanted to use. I like the way it turned out because it matches the vintage feel of the "Salt Air" collection. I also added "Rock Candy" Stickles to the chipboard to give it a bit of shimmer and interest.

In this last post, I'm sharing the links to the rest of the sketch blogs I've found. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!

1. PageMaps:  Becky Fleck has been creating sketches longer than I've been scrapbooking! She's always up on the latest styles and has amazingly detailed designs.

2. Sketch Savvy: Susan Stringfellow creates really great sketches with clean lines. She does a great job with sketches that include a lot of photos.

3. Inspired Blueprints: This site has an amazing design team! I am always awed by their creations with the wonderful sketches that are available there.

4. Creative Scrappers:  I really love that this site features sketches that are made by different girls. If one sketch doesn't fit your style, the one next week probably will!

5. Helen Croft: She has sketches and awesome tutorials on her site as well as really neat giveaways.

6. Once Upon A Sketch:  A new sketch blog that is only a few months old. They've attracted an amazing design team. I love going to peek at what they've created.

That concludes my list! If you know of any other ones, feel free to link them in the comments. I'm always looking for more inspiration.
More of Heather's work can be found here on her blog!!


  1. Gorgeous as always! Love the Salt Air and I think changing your photos to b/w was really smart.

    Thanks for the additional links to sketch blogs. The only one I read is Helen Croft's Scrap a Little, so I'm looking forward to checking the others out.

  2. Love how you did that background page in blocks like that. :)

  3. Thanks ladies! =0)
